Ponca City Public Schools announce online registration procedures for all students

Ponca City Now - May 6, 2016 1:28 pm

Ponca City Public Schools remind parent/guardians that online registration will take place for the 2016-17 school year.

Online registration will open July 5, 2016 for all students. Parent/guardians must have an account in the PowerSchool Parent Portal to complete online registration for their student(s).

The Access ID and the Password ID, along with instructions to create an account, can be obtained from the student’s school before the conclusion of the 2015-16 school year. If parents do not have access to a computer, they will need to contact their student’s school for assistance.

Beginning July 5, parent/guardians can register their student, who completed the 2015-16 school year with Ponca City Public Schools, for the 2016-17 school year through the Parent Portal, accessible from the PowerSchool link on the district website, www.pcps.us .

During the online registration process, parent/guardians will have the ability to update their information, including addresses, telephone numbers, emergency contacts, and other information.

Certain information can only be updated by district personnel.

District-required forms are now part of the online process. Only in certain cases will a parent/guardian be required to provide documentation to the Registration Center.

Once the online process is complete, parent/guardians of students entering grades kindergarten through fifth will be required to furnish proof of residence at the Registration Center during summer registration hours. Proof of residence is not required for pre-kindergarten students who pre-enrolled.

Proof of current immunizations will be required for students entering kindergarten or seventh grade in 2016-17 due to additional immunizations required for those grade levels, unless the appropriate documentation has been provided to the school prior to the conclusion of the 2015-16 school year.

Students who have pre-registered for the 2016-17 school year, such as pre-kindergarten, students entering from private schools, etc., do not need to take any further action if all necessary documents have been provided to the Registration Center.

Parent/guardians of pre-registered students can create their Parent Portal account beginning July 11 to review information currently in the student information system, PowerSchool. The Access ID and Password ID can be obtained from the Registration Center.

If a student is new to the district, or did not complete the 2015-16 school year, a Parent Portal account must be created in order to register the student for 2016-17. Instructions for creating a Parent Portal account can be found on the district website, www.pcps.us . Accounts may be created beginning July 5.

Registration will not be complete until required documentation is received at the Registration Center.

Parent/guardians who do not have access to a computer may register their student at the Registration Center, 111 West Grand Avenue, during summer registration hours, using computer stations set up for that purpose.

Additional staff will be available to assist with the registration process. Students who have not been registered online, or who have not submitted any required documents, will not be considered registered and will not be assigned to a class. Secondary students will not be permitted to pick up schedules until the registration process is complete.

The Registration Center will be closed during the month of June and will re-open on July 11 for summer registration. Registration times for the Registration Center will be July 11-14 and July 18-21. The hours for Mondays and Wednesdays will be 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. To accommodate working parents, the hours for Tuesdays and Thursdays will be 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Make-up registration will be Aug. 2 and 3 from 7:30 a.m.to 4:30 p.m. and will close from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for lunch.

Parent/guardians will need to allow extra time during the make-up dates due to Registration Center staffing limitations. The Registration Center will close from July 21 through Aug. 1 to allow time to process completed online registrations and to determine class sizes at elementary sites.

Information about the online registration process will be posted on the district website, www.pcps.us .

For more information, please contact the Registration Center at 580-718-3834 or the Administration Center at 580-767-8000.
